Ravaillac, Paris: 1 reviews and 1 photos
Thousands of people a day walk across this piece of history and probably the vast majority don't know what happened here. In front of 11 rue de la Ferronnerie is a plaque on the floor commemorating the exact spot where Ravaillac murdered King Henry IV on 14 May 1610. Quickly arrested he was imprisoned at the Conciergerie and the 27 May brought to the "Place de Greve", old name for the place in front of the City Hall, and torn apart using 4 horses. Very gory end.....
Close to here was the infamous "Cimetiere des Innocents", the adjacent street being named "rue des Innocents.
